Federer’s father about his son’s decision to retire
Robert Federer spoke about the moment when Roger decided to retire and confessed that the family got together to consult with each other before the final decision was made.
“Before Roger Federer made the decision and made it known to the whole world, we all got together to talk about it. The biggest problem was finding the time and place to announce it, as it all happened in the fall with the recent US Open final.
Of course, this would not have been the moment that Roger dreamed of, especially since Serena Williams had also announced her retirement on those dates, that she decided to put an end to in New York” – Robert stated. Regarding his most painful moments in his career, Robert commented: “I think the 2019 Wimbledon final against Novak Djokovic, wasting two match points on his serve, was the hardest moment of his career.
Also the two semifinals lost to Novak at the 2010 and 2011 US Open, where he again had match points in his favor”. In the past, Robert Federer also revealed his favorite moments from Federer’s career. “There are really a lot of salient moments in Roger’s career.
One of my favorites is undoubtedly the first Wimbledon triumph, but also the subsequent wins against Andy Roddick. I will never forget the success at the Australian Open 2017 and the seal at Roland Garros, or the Davis Cup won with Switzerland.
Beyond the successes, I am reminded of the atmosphere that was there during Roger’s tour of South America. My favorite tournament? Federer has always loved grass, so Wimbledon has become a fixture for our whole family.”
